Yeah I agree the extractor on the 700 isn't the strongest. They do have a 798 that has a Mauser type claw extractor. They areconsiderably more exspensive though.
Compare the prices of the xcr and the 798.Yet again our scientist is wrong.

I wasn't talking about MSRP. Who sells for MSRP?

My dealer prices aren't that much different. Around $720 for the XCR. Have to check on the 798. I hope for my sake it's cheaper.

Better get your licks in when you can stubble...it doesn't happen often.
